[G3D] Seasonic 1000W Platinum Power Supply Review

post #1 of 30

Today we're testing probably what is the best power supply we have had in our hands, and it comes from a bit of an underdog, Seasonic. You probably all have heard of them but they are not really known, we think that after this review that is going to change. See Seasonic is primarily an ODM, (Original Device Manufacturer). So that new OCZ PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III for example, who do you think really produces it? Yup, that's right.

A review within a review? Reviewception.

Read through the review and be open-minded~ Seasonics is in fact the manufacturer of many great SPU companies like OCZ~

As you may know, many computer parts are manufactured by Taiwan companies, and Seasonics is one of those. If you are a computer geek in Taiwan, you KNOW that Seasonics has the best PSUs as long as youc an afford it~ ^^
